Mystic Prophecy – War Brigade

Share

Mystic Prophecy are a German Power Metal band, formed in 2000. These guys are AWESOME. There’s a really interesting blend of American style Power Metal, ala Iced Earth and European Power Metal. A heavier guitar, not as fast as most European style Power Metal. But it works, it keeps the European feel, while taking on the American characteristics.

The first track I listened to was Crucifix. I was impressed almost immediately, and went through the whole album (War Brigade) twice. This is a group of industry vets. They’ve been around for a long time, and they know what they’re doing. It shows. The music video for Crucifix is great, and the whole War Brigade album is stellar.

Roberto Dimitri Liapakis, the lead singer, has a very distinct voice with just a little bit of grit and dirt in it. It’s a wonderful compliment to the heavier guitars and drums. The guitars are a technical knockout, and the sound meshes. It all blends perfectly together to create something you don’t hear every day.
